Federal guidelines require each nursing facility to develop and implement written policies and procedures prohibiting mistreatment, neglect, or abuse of residents. A resident in such a nursing facility is entitled to receive verbal and written notice of the rights and services to which he or she is entitled during their stay in the facility.
Below is a non-exhaustive list of the rights residents of nursing homes have. However, as always, if you suspect that someone is being harmed in a nursing home, it is critical to contact an experienced nursing home abuse attorney.
